Chubna Barrel-Aged Imperial Scotch IPA
Aged in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels
Canned On: 04/14/16
ABV:12.6%

Poured in a Roosters true pint glass a very nice dark golden brownish/amber color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, pretty nice bourbon/oak notes, and some vanilla. The taste is pretty nice, malty, very nice vanilla note, very very nice bourbon/oakyness, nice sweetness. Full body, ABV hidden pretty well. Overall, a very tasty brew, but might not be for everybody. Nice Job OB!

Had at a tasting. I had this right next to Old Chub. The thing that hits you is how much more creamy this is than the regular. The bourbon is very present but not overpowering.

This was ages in Ridgemont 1792 Bourbon barrels for 10 months. Frankly, it didn't t add much to the flavor. Kind of disappointing.

This rating is for the nitro version. The standard is at least a half point lower.

This review is for the whiskey barrel aged version that was served at Hunahpu’s day 2014. On draft and poured into Huna’s day souvenir taster glass. Cola brown and clear with thin tan head. Smells of malt, whiskey, wood, coconut, caramel, and toffee. Strong barrel notes come on the taste with coconut, wood, and vanilla leading the way. Malt, peat, caramel, and brown sugar come mid-palate with moderately strong sweetness. Boozy burn on the swallow. Medium-full body, sticky thick texture, nearly flat carbonation, boozy sweet finish.

On tap at the Basin Pub in Bushnell's Basin, NY.

Pours a dark caramel brown, with no head or lacing.

Smells like bourbon, peat smoke, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and coconut.

This one tastes great. I get a ton of vanilla and coconut from the barrel, on top of smooth, well folded-in bourbon, some chocolate, peat smoke flavor, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and the slightest booze burn.

Other than the slightest boozy burn, this one goes down so easily, really drinkable. Low carbonation. Medium bodied, fairly rich.

This was awesome. It's incredible that the Basin Pub got a keg of this stuff.
